Fake A Medal!

I very much disliked the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony because of the over-the-top political correctness.

Whoever planned this ‘multicultural’ piece of crap to portray a jolly Britain where all the cultures lived ‘happily’ together should have their heads examined.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Britain and I love the Brits and the English.  If I did not regard them highly, I would not be living in England.  The farce that I watched on television in the guise of an ‘opening ceremony’ is a serious attempt at thwarting history.  The truth sadly, as most of us know, may not always be sweet… in fact it is bitter and people try anything and everything to avoid it.

I have always been baffled by the extreme political correctness of modern times but now I understand the purpose behind it all.   I know that the opening ceremony was cleverly devised and orchestrated to portray a ‘united Britain’ of colours and races.  A passive conditioning exercise to make viewers subconsciously accept this fake reality over true events of the past.

I remember when my family used to bring me to England as a child for eye surgery.  We were once in a taxicab from the airport heading down the Cromwell Road.  The driver stopped at the light and I was looking around absorbing the atmosphere when my eye caught a sign on a door:

No Blacks
No Pakis
No Dogs

I distinctly remember the sign because I could not understand what ‘Pakis’ meant.  Back then there was no Google and my father looked solemn when I showed him the sign and he shook his head.  He never explained what it meant and he told me to forget it.

I moved to England in 1983 and I lived in the UK since then.  I witnessed many good and memorable events as well as ugly and painful ones.  I remember the Tottenham riots of 1985, Brixton riots, Birmingham riots, to name a few… and all were racially instigated and right up to the riots of 2011.

There was a time when very sadly racism was rife in England and if you were Black or Asian or of any orientation that is not white, you had a very hard time.  There was no social integration but extreme segregation.

Even I as a white man had to endure a fair share of racism myself including an episode with a cab driver who threw me and my sister out of his cab because he misunderstood the name of the road I wanted and told me to get out of his country and swore at me in front of my sister.  Of course, he wasn’t as tough as he thought as I kicked his door and dented it badly – he simply drove off…

Being racist is part of being human and ignorant, racism is inherent in all of us and even more so and particularly in those who pretend not to be racist.    Being mentally or emotionally racist is not necessarily as evil as being racist in one’s actions.  A person may be racist and not tolerate other colours, cultures etc…  unless an individual seeks to intentionally harm others driven by racism, then he or she remains as an ‘ignorant’ rather than an evil person.  Ignorance has hope while evil has none.

As far as I am concerned the opening ceremony was extremely insulting because of the portrayal of a lovey-dovey society where all colours mixed happily and played crochet and enjoyed a drink together.  Sorry, but that is not the Britain that I once knew.  What modern society is trying to achieve is a micro ‘plaster’ over a deep wound by using ‘brainwashing’   If the idea of a perfect lovey-dovey society is portrayed for long enough and across many generations, then perhaps certain cultures will find themselves asking less questions and start to accept the new plastic reality.

The Britain that I once knew was full of racism, ignorance and hate but at least back then people were honest and dignified and did not disguise their feelings with plastic political correctness.   You knew where you stood, even if at the receiving end.  Honesty can be cruel sometimes but at least it is not fake or disguised with absurdities.

Deep wounds are never healed with lies and nor are they forgotten – not in a million years.  The riots of 2011 in England showed just how deeply entrenched these feelings are and the incredible levels of hatred.  We may not like aspects of our history and we may stand ashamed but it does not mean that we have to masquerade and pretend.   Universally, all people and all cultures share one thing in common: no one likes their intelligence to be insulted and that fiasco of an opening ceremony did just that.
